Here's the deal with the cartridge alignment page....the machine will spit out a series of black lines mixed with yellow ink and at the beginning of each of these lines is a "Green" check mark. The carriage moves back and forth over these lines and green check marks and reads them by use of what is called a "spot sensor" that resides on the right side of the carriage assembly. This is usually noticed by the blue ray of light that shines out of it. So if you are getting an alignment failure one of two things is happening....1)You've have got a bad cartridge (usually the color) and it is not laying down the right colors, specifically the green check mark or 2)You've got a bad spot sensor...even though it may still be shining the blue light, the sensor board can't process the information. Its an easy fix either way.

My HP Officejet 4500 keeps telling my to align my printer cartridges and I have done it several times. After I align them and print something it requires me to align them again.


Try removing the cartridges, closing the printer, and disconnect the power. Let sit for at least 10 minutes, then hook up the power, wait until it stops making noises, the reinstall the cartridges, black first, then color, and if the alignment comes up again, press cancel. This should remove the error.

My HP officejet 6110 all-in-one will not print. It keeps saying to align cartriges which i've done several times.


If you do a test print and any color is missing it won't pass alignment and keep giving the error. If you're happy with the printing, when it says press enter to align, press and hold the enter button and press the menu button. The error will go away and let you print.

How do i print the alghnment page this dam printer wont print with out alighment


You need all the inks full, especially the yellow, and just load paper and allow it to print the alignment page. If black and all colors are working it will pass the alignment, any color missing and it will keep asking for alignment. When it says press enter to align, you can hold enter and press menu and it will quit asking.

Sorry to ask a dumb question but did you remove the protective tape on the cartridge when you installed it? If yes, then proceed to the following HP help page where the align cartridge error is outlined along with several solutions. Best of luck!

If the color cartridge doesn't print the color bars on the alignment page (either, redish pink, yellow or blue) then the alignment process will not finish. Same for the black. If the black cartridge is printing ok, then replace the color cartridge and try this again...
